The Wolves hoping to climb ladder
THE Warwick Wolves premier division men’s side has a big weekend when it takes on West Wanderers at Queens Park tomorrow afternoon at 1.30pm.
The ladies’ match is at noon.
Warwick is currently fourth on the ladder, just behind Wanderers.
A win this weekend would put Warwick into third spot and in a good position coming up to the halfway mark of the season.
As Warwick can’t make the President’s Cup final this year and, taking into account a bye and then the long weekend, the side will have a three-week break after this game.
Men’s premier coach Gary Dargan is enthusiastic about the game and has asked the side to put everything on the line this weekend to ensure a win.
“There will be plenty of time to recover before the next game as some players are carrying niggling injuries,” Dargan said.
The Wolves front line has had to do some readjusting during the week after Ricky Sinkins was red carded last weekend during a fiery clash against Willowburn and could have some time on the sidelines.
Ladies’ coach Jon Pearson said the game should be tough as Wanderers were second on the ladder.
Most colts games are on Friday night and sixth-placed Warwick is drawn to play Wanderers this weekend.
Colts coach Peter Osborn said the game should be close.
“A win against Wanderers will be a positive step towards procuring a top-four spot,” Osborn said.
